Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you will enjoy top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're several Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS web hosting plans
and Debian is one of them, which means that when you need a server with this OS, you'll be able to get one in less than 1 hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll get will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline application which you would like to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be performed in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you're able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you will be able to do everything through your Internet browser using a user-friendly web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we'll also keep your Debian OS updated every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you will be able to pick any of them with just a single click for your new server, based on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for the best performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who want to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it comes with regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
